MUNRO, Alice. Friend of My Youth : Stories by Alice Munro. (Toronto): McClelland & Stewart, (1990). First Printing. Pp. (14),[3]-273,(3). 8vo, navy cloth with silver titles to spine. Munro's sixth collection of short stories."As always, her families of characters are sharply recognizable as people like us. Whether they live in a 19th-century small-town setting in Victorian respectability (as in the extraordinary story 'Meneseteung') or in Toronto today, we meet them at times of crisis where choices are made that shape -- or re-shape -- their lives. Their quandaries of separation and divorce, of love burning out or unexpectedly flaring up, may seem contemporary. In fact, like Alice Munro's work, they are timeless, and for all time." - from the dustjacket. Includes the following stories: "Friend of My Youth", "FivePoints", "Meneseteung", "Hold Me Fast, Don't Let Me Pass", "Oranges and Ap ples", "Pictures of the Ice", "Goodness and Mercy", "Oh, What Avails", "Differently", and "Wigtime". Very good to fine in clean, crisp, unclipped dustjacket. 15.00
